I am looking at ordering a new trailer. Reverse slant 3H gooseneck. This particular trailer has an additional gate so there is this little triangle of space in the back. I really like the design, so that horses don’t start trying to walk off as soon as you open doors.
I am considering getting a stud panel, as a divider when I have to haul hay with the horses. I know most people put this up front on the first stall so if they are hauling hay, they can unload first & then go back for the hay & to be able to get at the horses first in case of emergency. This particular trailer is designed as a walk through, & in such a way that all the horses can be gotten to if needed in emergency.
What I would like to get thoughts on is what if I put the stud gate on the third gate, in the back that gates off the end & leaves that little triangle of wasted space? Then I don’t give up a stall to hay if I need to haul all 3 horses. It makes sense to me, but since I have never seen it done, I would like to be sure there is not a reason no one does it. Opinions please.
